[applause] >> two presidential debates coming up. >> defense secretary says the u.s. space has the possibility of a close cyber pearl harbor that could shut down the transportation system, military networks, and military systems. secretary panetta's remarks came yesterday in new york city. >> frank, five words. you deserve to be here. [applause] ladies and gentlemen, it is now and high honor to introduce the most talented, versatile, and experienced leaders in american government, a man who serves our country by meeting the extraordinary challenges of our times. i am sure secretary of defense, leon panetta thinks on his days in the u.s. army intelligence where he received the army accommodation metal. he chaired the house budget committee before moving on to be the director was office management budget. from there, president clinton tapped him to be white house chief of staff. as directer of central intelligence, leon pa panetta me many critical decisions, but more recently, one particularly outstanding, and a public contribution to the defense
matter. after the sentence was handed down, both the prosecution and defense spoke before a swarm of media. first we're going to hear from prosecutor joseph mc mcgeddedin. >> i believe the sentence was a wise one. the harm he caused and the need to remove him from society. the victims' statements were a vivid reminder of the defendant's brutal crimes. frankly the defendant's behavior and statements today were consistent with the behavior throughout the period of time covered by the trial. that he displayed deservians, narcissism, a lack of feeling for the pain he caused others, and to the end an unwillingness to accept responsibility. >> we're going to challenge the fact we needed more time to prepare adequately jerry's defense. we needed more time to go through that information, to develop further investigative needs, and we simply ran out of time. we had to cut off our investigation to get ready to go to trial. we were literally preparing the night before each day with material that in some cases came in within days of the trial starting. >> reporter: again defense attorney joe
mccain said the other day this is the first time in 51 years that the senate hasn't passed a defense authorization bill. the problem right now, i don't think we will convince harry reid to change -- >> but the beauty and election you don't have to convince. you just have to replace. that's why we made a republican majority. >> given the people have in congress right now i would rather see gridlock than then getting to the kind of crazy ideas putting us more in debt just like raising the debt ceiling. you know it's coming again. you know congressman flake is going to vote for. maybe this time, maybe i stand corrected, it appears only. he votes for raising the debt ceiling when there's republican president. a rather than have these people and their content to march is done the same road we been marching down, we are better off with gridlock. we need to change hearts and minds. >> we gotcha. i want to know your opinion on the filibuster. is it being abused? should be done away with? it is not in the constitution. >> it absolutely is being abused spent do you think you think is probably?
rights. and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does, when we equivocate on our values, when we show that we're fighting our own defense it makes us more weak. it projects weakness, and when we look weak our adversaries are much more willing to test us-- >> with all drew respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> and why is that so? >> not a single thing he said is rack rat. >> first of all,-- >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security. the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for, number one. so much for the embassy security piece. number two, governor romney before he knew the facts before he even knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out naiking a political statement which was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about this-- this weakness. i don't understand what my friend's talking about here. we-- this is a president who has gone out and done everything he has said he was going to do. this is a guy who has repaired our allianc
and the enthusiasm among republicans, and also the defensiveness among democrats since the debate. >> it is a little bit. one other thing i want to point out. romney seems to have searched national polls than battlegrounds. i think this something i want to keep tracking. i think it's -- it's a little piece of evidence right now and it's been something that you know the president is stronger in battle grounds than any other states. how much of romney's bump is in the other 41 states, if you will? and in the national polls and where in the battlegrounds maybe everything was fought to a draw? that's something that has to be a keconcern to the romney team. >> chris cillizza, when we looked at the narrowing in the battleground polls, especially virginia, we're seeing an impact there also in a very important senate race because there had been an advantage for tim kaine over george alan there, as the president at the top of the ticket was pulling ahead but now that it's narrowed they are dead even. >> yeah. i think virginia's the one to look at in terms of down ballot effect, because we expect that race be

the modernization of our forces with these disproportionate cuts that are coming to our national defense. tim and his allies up in washington are saying we do not want these cuts from defense as the house did or did something similar to that. what they want to do is raise taxes. it will not create any jobs. we in virginia have over 200,000 defense and technology jobs. rather than cutting back, we need to make sure we have a strong economy, a strong military. as far as our spending, i disagree with the president giving money -- if they cannot protect our embassies, they should not be getting our money. do not buy a friends. >> isn't there is 60-second rebuttal? >> no, there is not. >> island that on the first one. >> i thought i did, too. >> if we were both under the impression. >> virginia seniors who rely on social security benefits are in for a lifetime of work. almost 1 million virginians receiving social security check every month. they are very polite, receiving on average about 77% of their total monthly income from this alone. an aging society will put strain on the program into the fu

. also renowned criminal defense attorney, mark geragos. you say jerry sandusky is opening the wound for the victims by releasing this statement. >> yes, anderson, i believe he is. what's happening is that sandusky is taking every opportunity to continue to torment these victims. he's now accusing them, in fact, made a direct reference to victim one by saying he started everything. there is no conspiracy here. there is no making these accusations for any reason other than to put mr. sandusky behind bars for the rest his life because of th heinous acts that he perpetrated on these victims. >> mark, what about this? he is alleging this basically huge conspiracy against him by just about everybody, putting out a statement like this the night before the sentencing hearing, is that something you would ever advise a client to do? >> no. the last thing you are going to want to do is advise a client i want you to go in there, you're better off just saying nothing. however, as a practical matter, he's going to get a life sentence, whether it's a number of years, whether it's consecutive, what

, with the exception of libya which is a special case which the obama administration is clearly on defense. what came across is there is a huge difference in style and attitude how these two campaigns will approach things. when they got to the policies, the two sides are remarkably similar. the romney campaign has throughout this campaign been trying hard to make this big contrast on foreign policy while actually keeping their policies fairly close on afghanistan, syria, on iran, to where the administration is. both sides want a withdrawal in 2014. the difference here is that the romney campaign won't call it a deadline for withdrawal, but they want to withdraw in 2014. both sides support the same set of sanctions for iran. the difference is that the romney campaign may have done something different earlier and may have gone less through the u.n. and may have been more vocal about their criticism of u.n. both have the same policy on syria. the difference is the romney campaign wouldn't have gone through the u.s., wouldn't have been more vocal and supported syrian opposition earlier. on the actual pol
worried about that. and on top of this is up to 200,000 defense-related jobs that will be lost in virginia if sequestration, president obama's plan to lay off defense workers takes hold. we're very worried about that. >> that's not just president obama's plan to lay -- that was a plan that was reached by both parties. so let's be fair and let's be honest. >> well, and it was -- >> go ahead, brian. >> it was a result of the republicans -- it was a result of the republicans holding the debt ceiling hostage. and that's why they entered this plan. this was a scheme developed by eric cantor from virginia. but let's talk about the jobs that corey criticizes here. if they were so concerned about the average virginian, then they wouldn't be sacrificing defense spending, education like pell grants for the expense of providing the very wealthy additional tax cuts. 120,000 families throughout the country averaging $8 million a year will receive tax cuts from the romney plan. that is not good for the average virginian. the average virginian wants to send their kid to school here in virginia like odu c
